Eight Years Ago....

On Sunday we had the privilage of sharing again at the very first church that asked us to give a musical program -- over 8 years ago! We smiled as we remembered the hours of urgent practice in our living room beforehand and the wild, nervous butterflies that danced in our stomachs as we sang. It was truly with "fear, and in much trembling". 1 Cor. 2:3

Little did we know or expect what the Lord has brought from that one evening of getting out of our 'comfort zone'. We are so grateful for the continual stretching that walking in this path has brought -- as well as the many friendships and blessings. There is nothing like stepping out, trusting God, and seeing Him at work.

In pondering these past eight years, it makes me remember what Dad often shares -- No, God doesn't call everyone to load up and travel the country. But he does have a calling for each believer. May we all be faithful in the area where He calls!

" Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord."

1 Corinthians 15:58

"Keep working for the Lord,
the paycheck might not be much,
but the retirement plan is out of this world!!"

You are a blessing! Such a blessing!!! God is using y'all to further His kingdom here on earth. What a priviledge, and honor! Our lives are richer, and our hearts closer to Him because of your bright, shining lives, and faces:) for Him!

Continue to fix your eyes on Him, as you so faithfully, already do!

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jer.29:11

My eyes shall be on the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me; He who walks in a perfect way, he shall serve me. Ps.101:6

You are serving Him, thus you must be fulfilling that perfect way?!:)
